Dress of the week March 7th

Good morning Ladies and happy March to you all! The weather here is turning for the better with warmer temperatures on the way. The blanket of snow we have had since early December is slowly melting. So maybe Spring is on it’s way. I will not get too carried away though, the last two months of March in 2018 and 2019 have given us over 20 inches each!

I missed writing my post last week(Sorry all!!) On the Friday 28th we went in both our vehicles to pick up our new sectional couch for the living room. It was at a furniture store 30 minutes away and they loaded It for us. Our Daughter was babysitting so we had a dinner date at a local countryside restaurant on the way back . It is nice to get husband and wife dates sometimes . We got it all inside after we got home and set it up. There was one snag however, one of the sections had two inch feet supplied instead of 4 inch so they are sending the correct ones by mail.

Our new sectional couch , ottoman and rug

Saturday 29th , I leapt straight into doing Laundry(Sorry I’m terrible I know!) In the evening we went to a local taphouse we had not tried before, it was very busy and the food delicious. On Sunday after Church they had the monthly pancake breakfast. Also last weekend our youngest lost his first tooth , and when I say he lost it , I mean we dont know where it went! It was missing on Saturday morning, we figured he might have swallowed It!I think we will have a low key weekend, I have to make plans to meet with friends one of these weekends!

Dress of the week February 22nd

Good morning Ladies! ( it is 11.58am!) I hope you are all doing well as we get towards the end of the month. After some snow on Tuesday , and cold temps afterwards ( minus 15 again on Thursday) we are now having sun and 36F today which feels like a heatwave !

Thank you for all the well wishes and concern as I was fighting the cold, I have to say I am pretty much over it. Our 1st grader though had to leave school on Thursday and take Friday off with similar symptons.

Last weekend was one of housework and clean up in general. ( Early spring cleaning!) There was a lot of laundry to get through also. I did get to take our youngest out to a playplace that has many fun slides and trampolines . They actually sell all sets but you can pay a fee to use them indoors away from the elements. He had a fun time.

On Sunday we went to Church , then the older boys went to an adventure place called rock and jump with their friends and their Mom. The week went by fast despite the cold. Last night our neighbor and his daughter came over for dinner and a few drinks for the Dad!

Dress of the week February 15th

Good morning Ladies, I hope you are doing well! We are warming up here after getting down to minus 15 F ( minus 26 C ) on Thursday and Friday. It was sooo cold! It is 25f now which will feel great when I step outside . WE got about 5 inches of snow last Saturday into Sunday . Last Saturday evening we went out for a double date with our neighbor Brandon and his Girlfriend Josette ( I heard on the grapevine she might become more than that soon….!) We went to a Mexican restaurant about 15 minutes away and after that went to a brewpub we like where they offer board games , we played apples to apples which is so fun! We got home in time before the snow started. Sunday we were able to get out too Church, attendance was down a bit though.

This week went pretty normal , I am taking it easy as I have a head cold and some coughing . The boys are going to a movie this afternoon with their Great-aunt , they love it as she spoils them! I hope you all had a nice St. Valentines day!

Dress of the week February 2nd

Good morning Ladies and happy Sunday to you! Welcome to February and a step closer to Spring. According to Punxsatawney Phil (breaking news!) Spring is on the way! All I know is that there is always 6 more weeks of Winter in Minnesota ! I have to say though it is an unusual Winter this year , there is plenty of snow on the ground but the temperature right now is 45F . I will take it. Yesterday February 1st was the first day of Spring in Ireland and by mid February the Daffodils are starting to rise from the ground.

As I said in my last post our little guy stayed home from preschool on Monday . We took him to the doctor and turns out he had a sinus infection , he is on medication and doing much better. Our Daughter got a nice surprise Yesterday ( I knew already in advance!) when her Grandparents surprised her with a trip to Las Vegas! ( they will be keeping her away from the casino’s !!) It is more family friendly these days. They leave on Thursday night February 13th and return on the 17th . They plan on taking each Grandchild somewhere as they get older.

Yesterday was a quiet day at home, this morning we went to Church and had a pancake breakfast afterwards, so good! We will watch the superbowl later , I will root for Kansas City as my friend Courtney and her husband Jake are fans and are attending the game!

Dress of the week January 26th

Good morning Ladies ! I hope you are having a nice day. I was busy Yesterday and did not get to post. Last weekend we watched some football ( congrats to the Kansas city Chiefs Courtney!) on Sunday after Church. We definitely had a relaxing day ! The Monday to Friday routine was pretty normal until Friday when our little guy had to stay home from preschool suffering from the flu. Saturday early was a day of laundry (yay!) And kids play dates., picking some up and dropping some off! On Saturday evening we went to Applebee’s to meet my mother and father-in-law, and my brother-in-law and his wife and kids. They were in the area after attending the boat show. I am still not sure if they are going to purchase! We will see in the months ahead. On Sunday after church our six-year-old went to his friends birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese. They always have a good time there. Now you are up to date!

Dress of the week January 18th

Good morning ladies! On this the third weekend of the New Year I am finally writing a new post . I am sorry I did not get to write over the last few weekends I have been having laptop issues. I got a new laptop but did not like it so send it back. My next one is due to arrive on Tuesday so for now I am writing this from my cell phone. The last few weekends have been busy.

On New Year’s Eve we stayed home and had some friends over. They brought their kids and we played a bunch of board games which was so fun. They did not stay to ring in the New Year as it was getting late for the kids. On January 2nd the kids went back to school and everything was back to normal. 

Think Spring Terri….!

Last weekend we visited the kids great-grandparents( my in-laws) the one Great Grandma fell and broke her arm a while after Thanksgiving and we had not got to see her. So we seen her and her husband, and we drove about 10 miles and got to see the other great grandma. It was 8:00 in the evening when we got home but it was a very worthwhile day.

On Monday night during a snowstorm we went to see our daughter sing for her school choir performance. She is 7th grade , and they are getting better all the time! Today we received our new grey sectional couch for the basement! It looks great and finishes off the improvements we made there .

Dress of the week December 21st

Good morning ladies! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Temperatures have started to improve since last week it is 19 degrees Fahrenheit or -7 Celsius. It is a warm-up! By tomorrow it’s supposed to be in the late thirties .

Last Sunday after church that was a Christmas party with a light lunch and the kids got to make over 20 different crafts. They had fun gluing and glittering and pinning on various items!

This week has been busy with last-minute Christmas preparation. The kids finished school yesterday, we went to see our Pre-K son perform in the little Christmas Pageant, it was cute. The kids also brought little gifts for their teachers in appreciation for all they do.

We will leave at around noon on Christmas Eve to go to my in-laws for Christmas . We usually go to Christmas Eve church and then stay over the following day. What are your plans for Christmas?

Dress of the week December 15th

Good  morning  ladies !  How  are  you  today?  As  I  type it is -6f  or -22c  with sun. It is  the  same minus  temps it was  last week  with an ever increasing blanket of  snow forming on the  ground . We  had  a few  small  snowfalls  during the  week . At least the  sun is  shining , I will take  that small victory!

Last weekend  was  pretty  quiet  for me , with housework  and  a  little  shopping.  The week up until Friday was  pretty uneventful . We went to our local Mexican restaurant  on Friday night , taking our daughter’s Friend with us.  Saturday    Morning there  was  more housework ( go figure!)  In the afternoon we  went to the mall to meet the extended  family . ( my father -in-law arranged a  guys night out  at  the monster jam  truck  event at the vikings stadium )  and the Girls hungout at  the  mall for a  few  hours . Win win for everyone !  It was  close to midnight  when we got home after  the two groups  met up again .  Today after Church there is an arts and crafts  Christmas  party for the kids.

My Christmas decor:  as promised to you who asked  here are pics of our Christmas decorations !

Dress of the week December 8th

Good morning Ladies !  I am a  day late writing this week , I got a  little  busy yesterday  with the kids  and household stuff. Last Sunday after Church we  surprised the kids  by telling  them we were going to Great wolf Lodge  Waterpark for the  day and  staying overnight in the hotel! They were  very excited  , they had Monday off school, an extension of the Thanksgiving weekend.  We packed up and  arrived  there at 3 pm, the room  wasn’t ready until 4pm  but they wanted to go in the park so badly they changed in the locker rooms . I waited until we got to the room to get into my swimsuit though.

We swam , tubed , slid, paddled for an hour and  a half then went to Perkins  for dinner .  Then it was back until 9pm when the  waterpark  closes. We came back to the room cleaned up watched some tv then eventually sleep ! The room had two sets of bunkbeds and a queen for us.  We used the park again the next morning after  having  breakfast  and  had to then check out by 11am. There was  a lot of fun had! Tuesday was back to normal for all . The week went by quickly to Friday . We are having a quiet weekend  , the kids had some playdates Friday and Saturday , Our Daughter had a  sleepover Friday night.

Today after Church  our monthly Pancake breakfast takes place. It is also the Feast of the Immaculate Conception  of Mary .

Dress of the week November 3oth

Good  afternoon ladies! It  is  the  Saturday of  Thanksgiving  weekend and  we  survived yet  again hosting  for our  family !On  Monday afternoon  we  both went  to the  elementary school to see  our  son  play the  ukulele in their  last session for the  year. He likes it and is interested in getting  his  very own. Tuesday  was  spent  getting  the  house  spick and  span ( well more spick and span than usual!) in anticipation for people coming on Thursday.

Tuesday night into Wednesday morning it snowed 5 inches , the kids  had  the day off anyway which was  good. Last minute  items were  picked up  to be  ready  for  the  big  day. The kids  stayed  up late watching  a  movie  which helped them sleep in the  next morning.  We did a bunch of food  prep   and  people  started arriving around 10.30 . They had dishes to heat up after driving . There were 16 in total including us 6.  It was  a lovely time together  with good food . We are all thankful for another year together.  People left by 6pm  and it was  a  quieter house again ( its never totally quiet here!)

I did not go black Friday shopping . Instead on Friday morning we transformed the house from fall  to Christmas decorations, and put up the tree. The kids helped this year in a  big  way. They were excited to! We baked Christmas cookies  trying to start a  tradition  going forward . They were all decorated in unique ways by  the kids. Our neighbor Maddi came over to help also ( she is 6 months younger than our  Daughter  and her parents  split a  few years back unfortunately  and spends 7 days at each house)  We had  Lasanga  in the evening and maddi and her Dad joined us for it. We got another 4 inches of snow overnight , so it truly is  a winter wonderland  all before December 1st!

SHOUTOUT!!!  This is for Courtney and her Husband Jake   who through  her blog announced  she is pregnant  and are expecting their first  child in May See her post here congratulations to both of you!

Dress of the week November 23rd

Good morning Ladies, how are you today ?  It  started out  with  a  heavy frost  and  now  has  changed to beautiful sunshine  here and  a temp of  37 which feels nice . ( I know some of you think that sounds crazy !)  Last  weekend  we  stayed close to home , did a  bunch of  errands  and  set  up our  sons  archery  target. He  got  a  bow  for his birthday   and  is having  fun ( under strict  supervision!)  trying to hit the  target.  When  the  kids went to bed  we  binge watched  some of our  Chicago shows .   On  Sunday  after  Church   we  had  coffee  and  donuts  and  chatted with our son’s  friends  and  their  Mom  Crystal.  Tuesday  evening  we met with our  life Insurance  agent  to  do a yearly  review .   Wednesday  was  Church class for the  kids .  This morning I went to the  hair salon to  tidy up my hair and  get  a  little taken off.  I ran some errands  also. I have  a  little  me time for now !

 

This evening we are  supposed to go out to dinner with our  neighbor  Brandon (happy Birthday Brandon Nov 22!) and his Girlfriend  Josette  but I am not sure if it is still happening  as  her  Grandma had to be taken to the  emergency room this morning, I am not sure about  the rest of the details as  I write.Update:-  We  did not go out for dinner , Josette’s Grandma had pneumonia  and was having trouble  breathing, she is doing fine now.  Oh well we have a  chance to reschedule now!

Thanksgiving

We are  hosting  Thanksgiving   this year  and are expecting  18 people in total depending on how  the  great Grandparents are feeling. The Great Grandma is on oxygen to help her  breathe and has good days and  bad  days.  Everyone is  bringing  something so  many hands make light work.  We are looking  forward to family time .

Dress of the week November 16th

Good  morning  Ladies , how are you today ?  It  is  a really  nice  34 degrees  and  partly sunny  as  I write  this  at  7am.  It  is  a  nice  break from the  4 degrees it  was  earlier this  week. It  was unseasonably  cold ( even for Minnesota!!!)  for mid  November . We also got a little snow  but it is gone  now.  Yesterday  was  gorgeous with sun  and  32. I know a lot of  you probably  cannot  appreciate 32 degrees being  nice , but  it is amazing  how  nice   a  warm up feels!

Last  weekend  was  low  key with  a bunch of  housework  and  laundry  done .  With a  Mom , Dad and  4  kids it is a  lot of  pieces of  clothing !   On Sunday  after  Church  we  went to the  Knights of  Columbus  pancake  breakfast  which is always  so good and  is our  brunch for the  day .   Sunday  night  we  had  homemade  loaded  baked  potato soup  for  dinner , it was very tasty !  Monday and  the  regular  week came  quickly  and all the  juggling  there is to do  to get  through it!

Dress of the week November 9th

Good  morning  ladies !  I apologize  for  not  posting  last  week .  It  was  just  another  busy  weekend of  family  time  and  did  not  have  time  to write.    Our  temperatures  have  got  very  cold , as  low  as  7F ( -13c)  Yesterday. We  also got  one  and  a half  inches  of  snow Wednesday.   I am so not  prepared  for  Winter  in  fall  again!   The  week  before  the  kids  went  trick or  treating  and  the  temps  were  on  the  Chilly  side . We  only  spent  an hour  outside .  We  did not  get  it  as  bad  as  Cindy in Chicagoland who titled  her  post  Merry Halloween  after 7 inches of  snow in  Northern Illinois!

Last  Sunday  we  went  to my  in-laws to  celebrate  5  family  Birthdays  from  September past to January. It is  a big  span  but it  is hard  to meet  up  sometimes apart  from  Thanksgiving and  Christmas  this  time of  year.  One of  those  Birthdays  was  for our  son  Oran  who   celebrated  his  10th  Birthday  on Tuesday. He  is  so  thoughtful , witty ,  kind  and  funny ! We  will  definitely  keep  him  for another  10  years  by  which time  he  will be  a  young  man  , yikes !!

This  weekend  is  going  to be  pretty low  key.  Are  you  doing  anything  special ?

Dress of the week October 26th

Good morning Ladies ! I am  sorry I missed out on writing  my  post  last  week.  I was  just so busy  I didn’t  get time to fit it in. Last weekend on Friday we    lit  a  fire in our  pit . It  was  borderline  too cold  but  we  soon warmed up!  Saturday was a busy  day of  housework  and  hanging out with the  kids.   On Sunday  we  travelled  90 minutes  to celebrate  the  birthday of  my  Grandma-in-law  who  turned  85. It  was  a lovely  lunch  get  together with  4  generations  celebrating.  She  is  a  strong willed  Lady who continues to drive  and  be  Independent. She  is  involved  in  quilting  with her  Church  where they send  them to people in need. A great role model.

The  week  went  by  as  usual  with juggling of school and  work  ( we  get  through it every week!)  The  kids  had  Church  class  on Wednesday.  Last  night our  Neighbor  Brandon  came over  for dinner and   some  drinks   and  stayed to watch the  baseball world  series. This  evening we  are  going out  on  a   much   needed date  night  together!!  It  is hard  sometimes  to make  time  with  4  kids  but it is  important  to make  time. Our  Daughter  will babysit , so it is  responsibility for  her.  We are  going  to  go  to  a cute  little  town  15  minutes  away  and  have  dinner with a  few  drinks .

Dress of the week October 12th

Good morning  Ladies ! How is your  October  going ? It is  down to 34 degrees  F   and  we  had  a  dusting of  snow last night ! I hope winter is  not  here in  Autumn .

Last  Saturday  was pouring  rain all day  and  we pretty much stayed home. I am glad  we  went to the orchard  the  previous  Saturday!  On  Sunday we  went  to Church and  after  they  had  the  first  pancake  breakfast  for the   October thru May  period . They  do it once  a month and is  so good.  In  the  afternoon  we  spent  some  time outside  enjoying the  sunshine.

On  Monday  morning  I  went  to  the  post  office  early  to get  stamps  as  I was  mailing birthday cards  for  my  Niece  and  Sister . I  wanted  airmail stamps and  I  got to the  counter  and  asked  for them and  they were  out ! I  was  amazed , that never happened before.  So I left got in the  car  to leave turn the key and nothing. It  would not  start. A kind   gentleman  tried  to jump start it with no luck . We figured it  was  the  starter. So a  tow  truck was  called  and  brought to the garage. I got  a loaner  car. turns out it was  the  starter.

Dress of the week October 5th

Hello my beautiful friends and  welcome to October ! It  has  been a  wet  few  days here  with lots  of  rain  and  clouds. The  sun  has  made  a brief appearance  today ( very brief!)  but  tomorrow  promises to be  better . I know it  could  be  worse  with some  places in  the  US  and  Canada  getting s**w  already !

Last  Saturday  morning  we  had  soccer  for the  boys again  and  then decided after  we came  home  to eat out  and  go to  an apple  orchard (with a  winery!)   and  corn maze  about an hours  drive away.  The  maze  was  so  fun  and  we  had  to go these  10 stations  and  answer  a  question. it  was  all bison  related as  the  maze  was  constructed in the  shape of one !  We surprised  ourselves and  got 8 out of  10.  We  came  back from  the maze  and  picked some lovely honey crisp apples, yum yum !

 

We  spent  about  3  fun  hours  there  and  were tired and  ready for  bed when we  came  home with apples  and  cider !

On  Sunday  we  went  to Church   and  had  a pretty  relaxing  day.   Monday  was  soccer  and  softball for the  kids.  Wednesday  was  the  first  evening of  Church class, our  youngest started in his  pre k class  and  did very  well for  the  active  boy he is !   Last  night  we  had  a  bonfire  with  friends  over to enjoy  with us.

Good morning  Ladies , welcome  to  the  last post of  September (yikes!)    This  month is  moving  fast, the  kids are back at  school    4 weeks  now  and  the  signs  of  Autumn/fall are  everywhere.  Certain  trees  are  starting  to change  color and  the  weather is cooler in  the  mornings.  We  have  been  quite  lucky that the days  have  mostly  brought us  sunshine.

Last   weekend it  was  me alone  against  the  kids. there was  a mini college reunion  that  my  love  had  to attend  so I  was  Mom  and  Dad !  We  did  3  hours  of  soccer  then  with our  neighbor  and  his  Daughter (she plays soccer too)  went  to Freddy’s  (Mackenzie you need to go!)  for  lunch.  We  came  home  and  the  boys  had  a  friend  over  for  a  sleepover. I got  through  a  mountain of  laundry too !

Sunday   we  went to Church and  then  in  the  afternoon  there  was  softball.  Monday  and  Tuesday was  pretty  straightforward   and  then Wednesday  evening  there  was  a mass/ service for  our  kids   starting  Church class for  the  year. They got  to meet  their  teachers  after and  class starts  next  Wednesday.  On  Thursday after  the  kids went to bed we  watched  from  dvr Chicago fire and  Chicago pd  .

On  Monday  we  had  a first, our  4  kids  were  playing/practicing  sports  all at  the  same  time, the  boys  soccer  and  our  daughter  softball.

Dress of the week September 15th !

Good  morning  Ladies  !!  I  am  a day  late  with  my  weekly  post ,  I  was  busy  chatting  with  friends  yesterday  morning  which  was  fun  so here  I  am  now .

Last  weekend  we  had  soccer  in  the  morning   and  then   I  surprised  our  9yr  old  with  a   trip to  the  le  Duc  Mansion  for  a  civil  war  era day of  activities  with  re – enactments  with  cannon  and  gun  firing  and also  a  look  at   games  and  toys  kids  played  with in  that  era. There was  spinning  wheel   demonstrations  too. It was also  featuring  Women of  the  civil  war  this  year with a  lot  of  Ladies    wearing    beautiful  period   dresses.   They  had  a  demonstration  and  fashion  show of  all  the  different  dress types  from  workwear  to  Sunday  best.  We  also  got to  tour  the beautiful  mansion  itself and  how  it  is  preserved .

Sunday  we  went  to Church in  the  morning and and  had a  relaxing  day  at  home.   Our  Daughter  played  her  first   volleyball  game on  Tuesday  for  her  school. This  is  her  first  year  playing  and  is  enjoying  it.  She  is  also  playing  fall  softball so is  busy !

Our  little  guy   had  a  slight   choking  incident  on  Wednesday  evening  eating   a  PBJ  sandwich . He  coughed  it  up  but  was  in  distress  still  so I  took  him  to  the  ER  to  get  checked  out  as  a  precaution. They  said  his  breathing  was  fine .  After  drinking  some  water   there he was in  better  form, more like  himself , I  think something might  have  been  stuck in  his  throat  and  needed  to be  dislodged.   He  is  back  to normal and  doing  good in  preschool.

This  weekend  has  been  pretty  relaxing  so  far, we  are  starting  to  drain our  pool .  A  sign of  cooler  times !

Dress of the week August 10th

Good  morning  Ladies ! Welcome  from an  overcast  and  cloudy  Minnesota . The  weather  has  cooled  a  little  and  is  not  as  humid   which  I  like .   Last  weekend on  Saturday   we  pretty  much  stayed  home . Then  on  Sunday   afternoon  we  went  to  an  Irish  friends  house  for  an  evening  barbecue . Their  kid s are  older  than  ours  but  they  still  had  fun!  The  rest  of  the  week  was taken  up with a   lot  of  playdates  for the  kids  with  their  friends .

Last  night  our  friends  Jordan  and  Angie came  over  for   dinner  along  with  their  daughter  Kayleigh. She is  such a  sweet  girl (age 10) !  Their  older  daughter  Madison is  spending  the  summer with  her  Grandparents  who live  2  hours  away  so  we  missed  her.   We  ended  the  night  with  a fire  and  smores.

Back  to  school  mode is  still ongoing ,  the  kids  found  out  their  teachers  for  next  year  yesterday.  They  seem  very  happy   with  the  choices!

Today  we  are  taking  it  easy , and  then  tomorrow  we  are  hosting  the extended  family  for  an end of  summer ( yikes, end  of summer!!!)  get  together.

Dress of the week July 20th

Good  morning  Ladies!!  What  are  you  doing  this  weekend ?   We  have a  softball  tournament  going  on  since  Thursday, the  last  one  of  the  summer  season called  nationals .  The  Girls qualified for  this  great event  after  earlier wins throughout  the  year. It  started  on  Thursday  morning  with  a  game  ,  they  lost ,  and  then  won  their second  Thursday  afternoon . Then  in  the  evening  there  was  a  parade  where  all  the  teams  dress up !

Our  team  are  the  tigers  and  the  girls  picked  out  these  full  body  tiger  costumes from  the  3  photos  above. The only  this  is  it  was  95 degrees  with a  humidity  feel  of  105!!   They  persevered   and  got  through  it  drinking  lots  of  water. I  felt  bad  for  the  guy  in  the  tiger  head . There  were  many  cute  teams  ,  I  wish  I  had  taken  more  photos .    We  played  two  games  Friday  won  one    and  lost  one.   We   have  our  next  at  9:30  this  morning , phew!!

It  has  been a   warm few  days  as  said  earlier,  today  is  supposed  to  cool  a  bit.

The  rest  of  the  week  was  quite  normal ! I  have  to  get  going  soon!

Dress of the week March 22nd

Good morning Ladies! I hope you are all doing well in these new times we are living in due to the covid 19 virus. This is not something any of us could have envisaged a few short months ago but is our reality now. We must follow the guidelines laid to get through this sooner than later.

Last Sunday we had Church but since then the Archdiocese has said all masses will be done by video streaming.

The kids are keeping busy with games , books and playing outside with social distancing adhered to. They want to play with friends but they realize now it’s not possible. It is hard for them but they are understanding better now. They did a local sidewalk chalk challenge Yesterday!

The stores are calming down a little from the panic buying that was taking place , as well as new store rules being drawn up! I went to target on Thursday morning and as I walked in every cart had a package of toilet paper in it. I calmly walked back and grabbed a 12 pack as we were going low! They did have a one per customer limit which is good.

Dress of the week March 14th

Good morning ladies how are you doing today? The weather has cooled down a little here since last week, right now it is 25f but the sun is trying to peek out . It definitely has been cooler since last weekend. We pretty much stayed at home last weekend,on Friday night the 7th we had our Church’s annual Lenten fish fry. There were a lot of people there! Saturday we got the kids bikes out from the back of the garage, and dusted off the cobwebs! Our four-year-old rode his three wheeler for the first time unassisted it was great seeing him doing it.

On Tuesday I had a dentist appointment. I had to get a filling, I thought I was doing good with my teeth but you can always do better right? On Thursday two of our boys we’re home from school sick but they both went back on Friday which was good.

it’s unprecedented times we are living in right now, with the coronavirus everything is closed around here that is not necessary to be open. They’re talking about closing the schools is in our state next week. There is a lot of panic buying here which I think is a little over-the-top myself, it is not good if some have too much and others have very little. I think if we follow all the guidelines we will get through this ok.

Dress of the week December 28th

 

Good morning ladies how are you doing today? I hope you all had a really nice Christmas.

Last weekend was spent pretty much getting ready for Christmas and for going to my in-laws on Christmas Eve. On Christmas Eve morning and the kids woke up the stockings were full! Santa knew they wouldn’t be there on Christmas morning so as is his tradition he stopped by our house a day early. They also had a few presents to open!

At about 3 p.m. we left for the 2-hour Drive. It went really well and there was no need for any bathroom breaks, yay . We got there a little late for Christmas Eve Mass at their local church. We had a nice evening of food and games. There was also more presents to open! On Christmas morning we went to mass for the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. It was really cute the priest had all the kids come up to the manger area during his homily and explain the birth of Jesus in their terms.

After church more of the extended family started to arrive for dinner. We had some great food and chat and spent a lovely afternoon together. We packed everything up and we’re ready to be on the road again at 7 p.m. We had extra stuff to bring home than what we arrived with! The few days since Christmas have been pretty quiet as there is the flu going around and we don’t want to contaminate others. I think we are getting close to being over it now though!
